Grab your gear – and your friends – and get ready for Free Fishing Weekend this Saturday and Sunday! You'll be able to go for the 'big one' in state streams, rivers, and lakes – no fishing license required. And you'll catch a break on parking, too. And if you catch a whopper, be sure to share your photo on the KING 5 Facebook page! We're always up for a good fish story.
Can you draw?
SEEKING: Graphic novelist to make a mark on Seattle history. Here is a seriously cool opportunity! The City of Seattle is holding a contest for someone to design and publish a graphic novel about the history of the Georgetown Steam Plant. Funding for the project is $85,000 (which includes printing costs). Learn more about the project here and share with your artist friends!
Love and Butter ♥
Now, that sounds like my kind of place! Holly B’s Bakery in Lopez Island has been supplying love and butter for more than 40 years. What does that mean? Amazing cinnamon rolls and almond butterhorns, of course. The bakery’s motto is “Love People. Cook them tasty food”, so you won’t leave disappointed. Trust us, this is a place you want to check out next time you’re in the San Juans.
Who said you need a boat?
This is the ultimate two-for-one… Paddleboard Crabbing! With Kingston Adventures you can catch your dinner while playing around in the water (well, on the water). It’s simple: paddle out to the sweet spot, drop your pot, play around in the water while you wait, and then return to see what you’ve caught! Count us in.
